If you've been hanging out for new audio fiction to sweep you off your feet, here's The Bridge. We loved its spiky, creepy opening episode, which introduced us to an alternate 2016. In this universe, the Atlantic Ocean is spanned by a Transcontinental Bridge, once a glamorous route dotted with busy tourist attractions. Nowadays it's in the doldrums, particularly since the disappearance, years earlier, of hundreds of people from one of its most popular hotels. The bridge is manned by watchtowers perched out in the ocean, and our protagonist works at Tower 10, broadcasting traffic announcements. She's equipped with a smart mouth, a shadowy back story, and an interest in bridge folklore - plus first-hand knowledge of the mysterious goings-on still afoot on the bridge and in the surrounding water. Catch up with the first two episodes and get new ones every other week.
